the police and then chad asked steny hoyer about that and then about the comments and then you saw the quotes that he passed on there about proof, about what clapper talked about and what-- >> and the quote has offered us is steny hoyer said that the boston marathon incident is quote, proof of issues with sequester as it comes to the intel community. quote, proof of that, if proof is needed so he appears to be saying that the sequester has affected the intel community and has played some role, i gather in the boston terror attack, according to mr. hoyer. i mean, you know, i don't know. maybe that's the case, maybe they can prove that to us in the days to come, chris, i don't know, but is today the day for that over such a controversial issue? and by the way, the reason we had the sequester is because our lawmakers on both sides of the tiaisle passed it. i didn't look how steny hoyer voted, but it's bipartisan and is it the day to point fingers. >> and they'd come out and said wonder whether president obama's policy in syria or iraq or the middle east haven't left us more vulnerable to this, o
on the senate-passed faa furlough fixed. and minutes ago, steny hoyer gave a pretty impassioned talk from the floor. take a listen. >> i will oppose this bill, because it fails to address the whole impact of sequester. let me share just a handful of examples of how the sequester will affect americans. education, head start, 70,000 children will be kicked out of head start. nothing in this bill deals with them. >> congresswoman, what's your reaction to steny hoyer and your thoughts about the faa furlough fix means? >> first of all, i agree with steny hoyer that, in fact, it shouldn't be done piecemeal. that the sequester should have been one that we gave enough discretion to all departments to make the kinds of cuts that are made with a scalpel and not with a saw. and what people are witnessing across this country, with long lines, with delayed flights, is more than an inconvenience. it is affecting everyone's productivity. so, i think this measure that would allow the faa to take money, savings that it has from other accounts, and place it into accounts so we don't have to furlough the ai
. steny hoyer suggests spending cuts hurt our intelligence gathering capabilities and barney frank pushes for and suggesting that the sequester cut the first responders, the president threatened armageddon if we cut spending. and democrats found links between cuts and bombs. is that legit? "varney & company" about to begin. all markets down. a lot can happen in a second. with fidelity's guarante one-second trade execution, we route your order to up to 75 market centers to look for the best possible price -- maybe even better than you expected. it's all part of our goal to execute your trade in one second. i'm derrick chan of fidelity investments. our one-second trade execution is one more innovative reason serious investors are choosing fidelity. now get 200 free trades when you open an account. >> good morning, everyone, our top story, the polittization of boston. and listen to this. >> we know that first responders are being cut. we know that community policing is being cut. we know that health care services, especially emergency health care services are being cut. stuart: he's not the
should get the same flexibility as the faa to save crucial programs. maryland steny hoyer. >> 70,000 children will be kicked out of head start. nothing in this bill deals with them. 4 million fewer meals on wheels for seniors. 600,000 people dropped off wic, nothing in here for them. >> reporter: wic is a nutrition program for low income whim and children and its funding could be restored under legislation that gives every agency the leeway to shift funds around. so far, scott, that legislation has not gotten a lot of attention from lawmakers. >> pelley: nancy, thanks. well, the economy continues to take off. after growing a stingy 4/10 of 1% in the final quarter of last year, the government said today the economy grew 2.5% in the first quarter of this year. here's anthony mason. >> reporter: a cold spring at the gorham paper and tissue mill has not kept business from heating up. sales revenue here has soared 23% from a year ago. back in 2011 this plant was shuttered. but john harrington, a managing director with the new owner says it now employs 212 workers. >> bring people back
minority whip steny hoyer have been involved in the talks for the the carveout being, for the members of congress or senators and members of the house of representatives. we have a conflict. i don't know who to believe because both are in my eyes so credible. melissa: right. >> this is truly a deep, deep conflict. but we'll try to resolve that. meanwhile, to join all of the labor unions, the religious organizations in particular, the catholic church, illegal immigrants, welfare recipients and the carveout would be our august representatives on capitol hill and i do not simply mean those in the house but also the senate because they would not want to be left out of any carveout. this is a disgusting display by any measure. melissa: really is. >> and the suggestion, the suggestion that by, pelosi that all they want is the same thing. they want the same thing. they want equality with other federal employees. which shows you how modest and humble they are. but she didn't say she wants the same deal for every american. and until we hear those words, this is a pile of hypocrisy compounding
are eager to play down this dispute. today we heard from congressman steny hoyer, the number two democrat in the house from maryland telling reporters that the president's plan to incorporate this chained cpi for social security, quote: is not a news flash. and jay carney, the white house press secretary said this is not ideal from the president's point of view, it does reflect one part of a balanced approach to debt reduction as he has called for. one last point here, one little point. it's really just a drop in the bucket. use of the chained cpi for social security would raise $130 billion of tax revenue for social security over the next 10 years. according to the trustee's own report. the projected short fall is about $630 billion. >> bill: i know. it's a drop as they say. what time, ed, are we going to know about all of this tomorrow? what time? >> first thing in the morning 9:10 a.m. bottom line is all of this anger on the left just for show so the president can say look, i'm taking on the left or is there really going to be some pain in this budget? that's going to be the key. >> b
story. democratic lawmakers steny hoyer and javier business serra made critical references to the tragedy. a lot of other items were placed on the back burner today. here is chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel. >> the boston attack had a impact on capitol hill. it was clear early on this was not a day for bickering. >> we are united simply for the victims of this senseless attack. >> today, the thoughts of every measure are with the people of boston. >> relevant committee focused shifting to briefing from counter terrorism and law enforcement officials a news conference with former congresswoman gabriel giffords designed to boost support for gun control was cancelled. the gang of 8 immigration reform plan was scrapped out of respect for boston victims. the gang did release an outline of the plan. on security, it would include up to $7 billion in new fencing, border guards, and drones. and it would demand that the government monitor 100% of the border and capture 90% of those trying to enter illegally. florida republican marco rubio is members of the group. >> thi

's chained cpi proposal either as democratic whip steny hoyer told politico in an interview yesterday. that said, it's still april. and, therefore, still plenty of time to cut some type of budget deal. real action really doesn't start until june, july and perhaps even august. >>> to that end, the president phoned georgia republican senator johnny isakson a few weeks ago to ask his help in arranging a second dinner with perhaps a different group of republican senators. isakson handled the guest list. it's not been fully released. here's who we know is going to be at the dinner tonight taking police station at the white house, isakson, john thune. mike enzi, susan collins and even marco rubio. there's a chance he may not be able to attend due to a s scheduling conflict. >>> finally this story. there's a reason hollywood has a hard time doing fictional stories about politics. because you can't make up the stuff that beats reality. it involves the senate's top republican, mitch mcconnell, a secret recording by a still anonymous source and the sometimes seedy underbelly of how modern polit
of boston marathon bomb going off that some people on the left were starting to point fingers steny hoyer blaming sequestration was probably one of the dumbest things. chris matthews can i point something out. i disagree with you on seroda he used that headline to gain attention. cynthia mckinney who says maybe it was an inside job. >> let me tell you something really important. if they had information that this was something who was white wing or white supremist or radical group on the right we would have heard this by the liberal media already because they can't wait to put that stuff out laughner, tea party, republicans. >> represents the whole left. >> actually could have done 25. >> how about one? give me one. i will do this again. give me one example of a right winger blaming the boston -- >> -- you could argue. well, the -- i go back to laura ingraham said the fate about blaming the immigration bill is the same as blaming obama and those support. >> that's completely different, bob. >> no it's not. >> yes, it is. >> probably if i went through the internet, laura, i can probably fin
but you also had steny hoyer doing it. this guy the house democratic chair caucus chair xavier bizcera saying the boston will have to make money awith a from children's immunization to pay for this. because of sequester. focus on the fact that americans came together and rallied to the cause. we have grieving people right now. we have villains out there on the loose. that's where the attention should be. these are elected or recently retired officials who have no business politicizing this. >> bill: it even gets worse when you get into the punditry, powers. this guy david zerotta indicated columnist. it's unbelievable. he hopes it's a right wing militian or nazi nut that did this so his agenda is not impacted by. this i'm just amazed. but you don't seem to be amazeds powers. maybe because you live with these people and you know what it is i don't know like this. nobody in my town acts this way. >> yeah. well, i know a lot of people who do. i think -- but here is the thing about david's column is that he laments that there are people who will take an attack by islamic radical and ascrib
been whether she would run. steny hoyer put it quote, if she run, she clears the field. but is that really true? james carville agrees with that assessment. >> i don't think there's ever been anybody that is a prohibitive front-runner for party's nomination as secretary state clinton is right now. >> but of course, not everyone believes it. howard dean's former tech guru says the idea hillary clinton is the inevitable nominee is quote stupid. we've seen this before. newspaper columnists were writing clinton appeared to be in a class all by herself. gallup found her nearly 30 points ahead of a guy named barack obama. times have changed, but maybe not for the better as far as clinton is concerned. assuming she's the democratic nominee, she would be the front-runner, but being the front-runner or establishment pick isn't all that it's cracked up to be. in fact, it may hurt you more than it helps. 2012 saw another giant step forward in the role technology plays. social media means they can get their message out without having to pay for ads and could provide a significant w
by putting furloughed air traffic controllers back to work. today on the house floor, maryland's steny hoyer was outraged. >> while i was to end these delays for passengers in maryland, across the country, i will oppose this bill because it fails to address the whole impact of sequester. let me share just a handful of examples of how the sequester will affect americans. education. head start. 70,000 children will be kicked out of head start. nothing in this bill deals with them. 4 million fewer meals on wheels for seniors. 600,000 people dropped off wic. nothing there for them. unemployment insurance, emergency unemployment insurance cut 11% for 2 million out of work americans. nothing in here for them. >> joining me right now is managing editor of the grio joy reid and "huffington post" sam stein who fired off this tweet on this issue. "head start kids should start complaining about the long tarmac delays they're dealing with." let me go back to joy then to sam. joy, it seems to me republicans and democrats are not partisan when it comes to 30,000 feet. once you're up that high, everything'
steny hoyer- - the house minority whip-- rejected the criticism, and he challenged republicans to address cuts in other agencies. >> we ought not to be mitigating the sequester's effect on just one segment when children, the sick, our military and many other groups who will be impacted by this irresponsible policy are left unhelped. >> warner: at the white house today, spokesman jay carney said congress is taking what he called a band-aid approach to easing the impact of the sequester. but he said, the president will sign the bill. now a look at the quick turn of events of the past 48 hours to ease flight delays and what triggered it. alan levin covers the aviation industry for bloomberg news and joins me now. alan, thanks for joining us. this kind of quick action on capitol hill, which kind of quick agreement is almost unheard of these days. what brought it about? >> well, i think the-- when you bring pain to the public, that's when congress reacts to sequestration. a lot of the other cuts are a little bit more theoretical. they don't touch people in a big way. and you also ha
america vote act. which was my legacy built with steny hoyer. the first official election bill given with the federal government in part of the nation's history was the nation bill. i was on -- congress committee with senator mcconnell. at no point in time did say here's an amendment for jack abramoff, it didn't happen. hondid i agree to consider an amendment for jack abramoff for that bill, yes absolutely. i am probably one of the first members of congress in modern times to plead a felony for agreeing to consider an amendment to a bill. if they -- the hill today and charged felonies unpeople considering amendments to a bill, there would be barely anybody left and capitol hill. >> when did you know that you were doing something wrong? >> there were bright lines i crossed. for example, when jack abramoff came into my office and said of an amendment to help america vote act. he said members of the senate were interested in this. members of the senate were on board. i as a member of the house said clearly to jack abramoff i would consider this amendment, which is my felony considering
steny hoyer is one who will do the deal. steny hoyer very powerful, number two guy. don't think dominion will have that much of a problem getting that through. 3.5 billion, maybe 15,000 people put to work. >> what if we lose slow, natural gas prices for a lifetime. >> then they start the music and we'll go away. >> that's exactly what's happening. >> cramer has a pair of stocks on his radar. does he think they're worth your money? we'll fiend out next in his "mad dash." futures kicking off to a quiet start. skwt squawk on the street" from the nyse straight ahead.

-span.org/firstladies. and tune in monday for first ladies jane pierce and harriette lane. >> earlier today steny hoyer held a briefing on strengthening manufacturing and job creation. he was joined by fellow democrats who all planned to introduce bills in the near future. this is 25 minutes. >> [laughter] >> i just said no whispering in the back. i'm so pleased to be joined by so many of my colleagues here to discuss the reintroduction of our make it in america agenda in this congress. three years ago house democrats introduced our make it in america plan to create jobs and revive our manufacturing sector. and we have been pushing hard for its consideration. leader pelosi is giving a speech right now or she would be joining us. but she and i have been very, very strongly advocating, along with our entire caucus, the creation of jobs which we believe is our number one job in america. the number one objective that americans want us to be pursuing. we'll be able to work with republicans to pass a handful of make it in america bills last congress, including the export-import bank, re-authorization of the ameri
it and then in theory we should have fewer flight delays. house democratic whip steny hoyer stood up a few minutes ago he opposed measure he highlight ad lot of other programs suffered cuts, head start, law enforcement, defense. he says this measure does not address that. at white house spokesman jay carney offered this reaction. quote, this is no more than a temporary bandaid that fails to address the overarching threat to the economy because of the see questionter mindless cuts. a senate democrat frustrated with the way washington works. >> basically thursday night might be the key for us passing things. they want to go home. they're on planes and trains to get home. they will about agree to anything. this is something that should have been avoided a long time ago. >> reporter: manchin's democratic colleagues upset that aviation got a whole lot of attention. they wish a lot of other programs were also being fixed if you will. jenna. jenna: back to senator manchin's point there, a lot of lawmakers suddenly travelinging mike? is that adding motivation? is that part of this? >> reporter: look, no quest
it on the sequester. that's right. house minority whip steny hoyer told fox news the incident in boston is -- quote -- "proof that the sequester negatively impacted the intelligence community." joining us right now is stuart varney. events like this always get politicized, but it's so soon. >> yes, it is. this is the direct politicization on an outrage, an attack on america. i personally think it's wrong to do that. maybe it is inevitable but i personally think that it's wrong. now you have to ask the question: did the sequester cuts, did that in fact affect our intelligence-gathering capability, which impeded before the boston happening? is that what happened? did sequester affect our intelligence capability? obviously we don't know, but steny hoyer is implying directly that. he chucked it out on the table. he politicized a national outrage. >>brian: i would go the opposite way. i would say during the task force formed when bush took over after the 9/11 attacks, the f.b.i. took over. there was a dissemination of powers and responsibilities irregardless of sequester or anything else. nobody said e
, how close are they really to a deal? house majority leader steny hoyer >> reporter: jenna i'm hearing they are close. senator marco rubio, republican of florida says he is encouraged. the final product will have to be properly submitted for the american's people's consideration. for the other 92 senators from 43 states that were not part of this initial drafting process. in order to succeed this process can not be rushed or done in secret. that means hearings and allowing senators outside of gang of eight to offer amendments and get buy-from others. a democrat sounds hopeful. >> we'll not come to a final agreement until we look at all the legislativenguage. he is correctly pointing that the language has not been drafted. and there will be little kefuffles but i don't think we expect there to be problems. >> reporter: one big problem was labor and business groups signing off on the worker program for low skilled immigrants. senator schumer hopes a immigration bill could be on the senate floor in may. jenna: what are potential roadblockses that could prevent from happening by may? >> re
after he and steny hoyer denied there were ever any talks, of course there were talks about this. they were moving forward. and by the way, this prompted speaker boehner to say no, no, we wouldn't have it any other way than all of us in this thing together. >> megyn: boehner has been saying, i want -- yes, i want them to be exempted. i want everyone to be exempted. i want you to be exempted. i don't have anybody to have to go under obamacare. >> gets kind of crowded when we look at the carveouts and exemptions that president obama has provided, he has given it to religious groups, the catholic church included, after a little contra temt there. welfare recipients are exempted. they just get medicaid. >> megyn: that's what they're calling these, medicaid plus, which is one of the reasons people don't want to go on it. it doesn't sound like something that improves what they have. >> illegal immigrants of course get an exemption. labor unions, of course. they've worked too hard for this president to have to do anything, you know, like join the rest of america. so they get an eliminat
